The Western Australian Parliamentary Inquiry into End of Life Choices recommend in its report "My Life, My Choice" that the Government put forward a Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill, after further consultation with an Expert Panel.
The Expert Panel has delivered a framework for a Bill that will have strong safeguards and will be completely voluntary: for patients, doctors and nurses. Operating alongside palliative care, no-one would be forced to take part. A voluntary assisted dying law would also ensure doctors no longer operate in a legal grey area when it comes to assisted dying, and that the vulnerable are provided with greater protection.
If you are a doctor who supports this, please sign up below. We need as many voices as possible to show support for this law.
Once a Bill has been presented, we will be preparing a letter of support to members of parliament, similar to a letter that was sent to Victorian parliamentarians when the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill was being debated. Before sending out any such letter, we will consult with you before adding your name.
